A Celebration of Mahogany

Finger- or flatpicked, the Taylor 526ce acoustic-electric guitar gives you huge, balanced tone, and crystalline clarity. Session acoustic guitarists tend to prefer mahogany as a tonewood, as it delivers a focused sound that sits well in a mix without needing extensive processing. This superb, all-mahogany axe delivers pure notes without complex overtones - a strong, direct sound with natural compression that's perfect for a variety of applications. This guitar is sheer magic in the studio, and its onboard Expression System electronics serve up flawless sound onstage. Get major musical versatility with Taylor's 526ce.

Taylor All-Mahogany 526ce Acoustic-electric Guitar at a Glance:
  • Taylor's Grand Symphony body style
  • Renowned Taylor Expression System electronics
  • Beautiful, durable Taylor finish
Grand Symphony body style: huge, balanced tone with articulation

Bob Taylor developed the Grand Symphony body style to push the sonic envelope (yet again). Deeper, fuller, and louder than a Dreadnought, the Taylor 526ce acoustic-electric guitar serves up sonorous, piano-esque lows, solid midrange, and confident treble. Whether strummed or flatpicked, the Taylor 526ce gives your notes articulation - even with a light attack. The Grand Symphony is a body style that means it.

Renowned Taylor Expression System electronics

Designed to faithfully reproduce your guitar's native tone, the Taylor 526ce's Expression System uses patented Dynamic Sensors to capture both top and string vibration with incredible detail. The Taylor ES system was created in partnership with renowned audio pioneer Rupert Neve. Unlike standard onboard electronics, the Taylor Expression System is seamlessly integrated into the instrument from the ground up. Onboard tone controls provide added flavor, or can be set flat for an uncolored, exceptionally clean amplified sound.

Beautiful, durable Taylor finish

The lustrous finish used on the 526ce was developed at Taylor for maximum durability and resistance to cold-checking. This ultra violet-cured polyester finish is also more environmentally friendly than traditional lacquer finishes. You get the feel and tonal advantages of traditional nitrocellulose lacquer, with the durability of a modern finish. The remarkable thinness of the finish allows the wood to resonate more freely for superior tone; it's also clearer than lacquer and won't yellow over time - a common problem with nitro finishes as they age. The Taylor finish gives you the best of both worlds.
